Hi, I'm Shubhankar Mohapatra

I'm a Research Associate in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. Before this, I was a Master's student supervised by Prof. Xi He and Prof. Helen Chen. My research interests lie in Differentially Private learning algorithms with a focus on Federated Learning and Health Informatics.
I was opportune to spend some beautiful years at IIIT Bhubaneswar and work with Prof. Anjali Mohapatra on Genetic Clustering Algorithms in Bioinformatics.

When I'm not pondering on a piece of code to complete my project, you could find me sweating it out in a game of basketball, spending hours on board games or simply hanging out with my friends. Exploring novel concepts excites me the most. Going to new places and meeting new people keeps me going but at the end of the day, I'd rather come back to sipping my cup of masala tea with my younger brother at home. My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator(MBTI) is ENFJ [Extraverted, iNtuitive, Feeling, Judging].

Please feel free to email me at : shubhankar.m********@uwaterloo.ca. To fill in the stars, you'll have to spell out my last name.
